Moment in time

Ninety-one seniors, their parents and guests gathered in the new auditorium of the Grandview Heights High School for commencement exercises June 10, 1958. The class president and several high-ranking seniors spoke. The Rev. John R. Glenn gave the invocation and the benediction, and the high school mixed chorus, under the direction of Mrs. Betty Roberts, sang several selections. Ralph Berry, the high school principal, introduced the senior class and board member Dr. Tom Lewis awarded the diplomas. The program ended with the singing of the alma mater and the benediction. Following commencement exercises, the graduates boarded buses headed for Buckeye Lake where a buffet dinner was served, followed by dancing in the Crystal Ballroom. A swim took place in the Crystal pool, and rides and the miniature-golf course were open for the seniors' enjoyment. From 3:30 to 5:30 a.m., the class took a sunrise boat ride on the J.B. Taylor, the 300-passenger, triple-deck boat with music for dancing provided. Breakfast was waiting in the Crystal ballroom when the boat returned. The senior officers with parents and the class adviser, Fred Robinson, planned all the senior-night activities. Pictured here are commencement speakers: Fred Snyder, class president; Lucille Bryson; Ann Tuttle; Sharon Riggs; and Rusty Lawyer as they look over their speech notes.
